Wanting to do some mobile web development?  Try polymer.

That, and Polymer based "apps" will be, automatically, cross platform.

Q: Is there an Android|iOS|WinMobile|BlackBerry|Whatever version?

I had never considered leaving my comfortable life in San Francisco, California, but Las Vegas, Nevada would become my home in the summer of 2014 when I accepted a position as a mobile UX designer at Zappos. Spending my life in San Francisco had been a dream of mine since I first visited as a child....

Saturday morning breakfasts here are pretty excellent. The Brew Burger (not necessarily a breakfast item) is just excellent. Brisket with bacon and other deliciousness is drippy, oily, heaven. The simple, ever reliable, eggs with bacon is also a highlight. Plus we are regaled with 90's grunge rock. It doesn't get much better than that. Do be careful of the ex-spirits water bottle though, they do sometimes have remnants of their previous tenants.

Jolly good supermarket, here. Plenty of stuff. Even a coffee barista at the front door - great for those early Sunday morning grocery runs. They open at 7am after all.
